deficit spending to support the economy now. >> the argument would be, and this is the argue made by bob rubin and many others that do some stimulus spending but put in place a long-term plan to ensure the markets that you have a plan. you are not hostage to fortune in case interest rates spike suddenly. off process in place that allows it to happen and don't get hemorrhaging of nondefense. >> i'd like to me see men and women of goodwill come together and produce a long term-term solution. i'd like to also see world peace and marriage equality. the trouble is it is not going to happen in the current environment. we have a debate as the sequester unfolded you have republicans saying this is terrible. it will open us up. it is serving iranians but not a penny tax increase. but in that environment it is unrealistic thing to expect a grand bargain and we don't want to hold short term policies hostage to have a grand bargain i'd love to see but isn't going to happen right now. >> this last graph is about japan. you brought it to my attention. you wrote a book at about the japan economics and
of friends. >> his friends work of his california friends, the drowns, and i think bob and carol finch were very good friends, even the finch was sort of pushed, when finch can to work with them he was sort of pushed out, but he, he was, he was sort of a famous lonely man in many ways. particularly as president but i think the key to them, the key to his failure as president, sort of accommodation having great power comes enormous by which he never had before, and you could see him beginning to exercise after he was elected. you would see these loony memos he would send out address to mrs. nixon from the president. >> loving. >> he suggested that -- the most maligned politician in american michigan or the great comeback. where is this coming from? and you could see this site, the combination of great power and great integrity. that's a deadly combination, a really deadly combination and i think that's what finally brought them down. >> one of the things we did at the library was we started an oral history program, because the library had been run privately and the federal government had kep
. >> i love the note this morning more than anything. >> i mean, he's quoting bob seeger saying i know it's late. i know you're weary. a lot of people have upgraded the stock. >> this is a night move upgrade. >> it is. but we think more of let's make it last, let's find a way. so i was thinking of seger, but this is a company that's still going against the wind. you know what i wind? >> i was going do pete seger who really wanted to date me. he's calling it a frank blake moment. i'd like to say, gary balter when blockbuster video would go to 18 cents and it exceeded 100. the management is pretty horrible and he didn't know how to install a tv. this is a -- look, he had to start coverage and who knows when he would be able to recommend it earlier, but it is a great piece. >> it is a great piece. do you agree the comparison between jolie and frank blake because those are big shoes to fill. frank blake, a doctorate in law. frank blake is generous. there will never be another frank blake. >> i didn't like it either. i didn't believe it. all of the other parts of the argument i may be able to
business and our own bob pisani. good to have you on the program. >> good to be here. >> once again, europe on the front pages. it's going to be bad for confidence. do you think people should look at this and say, wait a minute, let me take money out of the stock market? >> well, i don't think that's going to be the long-term sitwausi situation. in the short term it raises a lot of nerves. the good news is that they're working towards making this a little bit more palatable. perhaps lowering the amount they ask for from insured depositors or perhaps even eliminating that and just focusing on the uninsured depositors. >> that's not happening. >> not yet. again, there's the possibility. >> bob, the futures were ugly over the weekend when this story was unfolding. asia was down 2% overnight. we are not by any stretch of the imagination that way. is this about the resilience of our market or are we just figuring out cyprus is a one shot deal? >> you're right. concern was high yesterday. why has there been no freak out today? as i call around, the market tends to believe the ecb and the fed are
which was hit back in october of 2007. bob pisani runs through the sectors leading the rally early on today. bob? >> important thing is what's happened is while we're not at new high, we're close enough. a number of sector, bill, are already essentially at historic highs. a mix of the defensive and cyclic cal naal names. essentially at or near historic highs. there's a group that's kind of in the middle, bill, that hit historic highs in 2008 and are just off of them. just below them about 10%. that's the utility stocks and the energy stocks and the materials stocks are just off of their historic highs but heading in the right direction, at least. finally, here's the really tough one, these are the guys that have never gotten close. telecom stocks and the tech stocks were destroyed in the dot com bubble in 2000 and essentially have never gotten close back to old historic highs. 50% off. financials got destroyed in the financial crisis of 2008. they never really got all the way back. here's the problem, bill. financials and tech are the two biggest weightings in the s&p 500. they're
, bob will retire when he's 153, which would be fine if bob were a vampire. but he's not. ♪ he's an architect with two kids and mortgage. luckily, he found someone who gave him a fresh perspective on hisortfolio. and with some planning and effort, hopefully bob can retire at a more appropriate age. it's not rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. david: other kel's stock continues its fall after-hours. -- oracle. let's go back to nicole petallides to see what the traders think of oracle right now. >> david, they're watching it in the after-hours get pummeled it here. the stock is 33.41 and change. that is the around that level bid ask. revenue came in light according to analyst estimates. i was looking to break it down to see where the strength and weakness was. the new software licenses and cloud software subscription revenues, those were down. what they did do well with is license updates. there is no doubt they came in with both weak revenue, weak earnings per share, not meeting the street expectations. as a result, you're going to see this stock tomorrow
of the "washington journal" today. we're taking calls from just republicans. up first is bob from philadelphia, pennsylvania. bob, thanks for calling in this morning. caller: good morning. how are you, sir? host: good. your thoughts on this new effort? caller: i think that they are still missing a little bit of the point here. i think the biggest problem is uninformed voters. all they hear all day long is just background noise from mainstream media. i was a staunch liberal democrat. i truly was, until i started doing my own research and finding my own facts. even my mom and dad were staunch liberals. they're both dead now. t like my mom always thought jack kennedy could do nothing wrong. the biggest thing that converted necessity to being a republican is when i watched the democratic convention, and on the floor, they had the vote to put god and israel back on the platform. why on earth did they ever take it out? that was like the beginning, the wake-up call for me. and then the other day, you guys were talking about chuck hagel and the new missile sites and everything. i listened to all the c
. >> they could go all of the way. >> let's send it over to bob who is in the middle of this crowd for marin software, bob? and they brought everybody including their mother down here. one of the fun things about this is everyone brings their family and there are all sorts of people, wife, aunts and uncles and i'm talking to various people from different parts of the world. the bottom line is it has the cloud-based technology. right now we're looking at 1850, and somewhere around there. remember, 7 million shares and they upped that. the price talk was 11 to 13 and pricing at 14 and now we're looking at 18.50, somewhere around that. good numbers here and 4 million and $15. we have another one today. wes corp. the phone service provideir and know you were talking about a big week for ipos. we had the model and all pricing above their initial price and all doing very well. i counted 27 ipos so far this year, and i talked to the ipo financial about that. 21 of them have priced above their initial price. 21 out of 27 and those are good numbers. i guess the question is, where are the rest of them
day today. >> let's check in with bob pisani with more on what is moving this morning. hi, bob. just three points away from the all-time closing high. 1562 is where we are. 1565 the all-time closing high. we see homebuilders's little bit higher and now that cyprus is sort of done, reducing volatility on the markets and the focus will shift to the fundamentals and what's going on. you know the bulls' argument and we have reasonable valuations and accommodative central banks and two things are worrying me and is the commentary last week and it was terrible. bell weathers like fedex, caterpillar, tibco software coming out with very poor commentary. i think that's a real worry for people. nobody's worried their overall commentary and we're expectation 10% increase in earnings for your 2013. another issue is the whole seasonality thing and i know sell a man, go away and sounds like an old wives tale. it's not, folks. there's been tremendous buy-in to this concept in the last several years as the numbers have become more supportive that on the idea that the period from november to april ou
you soon, guys. thanks very much. >>> and it was an up and down week for stocks. bob pisani now recapping all the action. >> bottom line is we ended not far from the highs of the day, not enough to get us into positive territory for the week. look at the dow. what a difference a year makes. if this would have been a year ago, going into uncertainty on a major event happening in cyprus, we would have been selling, now everybody's buying because we think everything's going to work out okay. a different attitude than there was a year ago. different look at some of the earnings. micron, nike, tiffany, all with positive numbers. look at those nice moves up. it still didn't erase the memory of earlier in the week when we had oracle, fedex, caterpillar. those are bellwether names and they really weighed on the markets. we had a lot of ipos this week. a little bit disappointment with marin software. priced at 14, opened at 19. my heavens, that was a big open. i'll tell you my rule here. any time an ipo opens at the top and ends at the bottom, i don't care what the price is, that's a lit
. >> bob, how much of this -- what has really been extraordinary market activity. it is the beginning of something that could really be nice. after 12, 13 years where people don't even believe buying hold anymore. they don't believe it. maybe we're starting something. how much of that a femoral because of the fed and how much is improvements maybe caused by the fed? >> you know it's something i've been thinking a lot about lately. you wonder how much the fed is really impacted, you know, this recovery that we have seen. is the market and the economy really able to sort of stand on its own right now? and i don't think the answer is a really quite clear. you know, certainly you would see a market react if the fed were to reduce the amount of bond purchases they're doing on a monthly basis. the numbers are in comprehendible. you can't wrap your head around $85 billion a month. >> no. >> it's kind of ridiculous. but i think the economy is really at a point where it would probably be able to move forward. just maybe not at the level that we're seeing. i think we could get back to sort of a
friends, the drowns, and i think bob and carol finch were very good friends. even though finch was sort of pushed, when fib. came the -- finch came to work with him, he was sort of pushed out. but he was, um, he was, he was sort of a friendless, lonely man in many ways. and particularly as president. but i think the key to him, the key to his failure as a president were two things. sort of the combination of having great power, enormous power which he'd never had before, and you can see him exercise it after he's elected. some of these loony memos addressed to mrs. nixon from the president. [laughter] and it was very, and -- >> loving. >> coming from, he suggested that they should commission a book about the most maligned politician in american history or the great comebacks in history. and where's this coming from? [laughter] and so you can see, and you can see the side that he was sort of this come by nation of great power and great insecurity, and that's a deadly combination. a really deadly combination. and i think that's what finally brought him down. >> something that struck me, o
. >>> let's check with bob pisani who's on the floor with more on what's moving this morning. >> interesting company, aviv. i used to be in the real estate business. aviv nursing home facilities. somewhere around $21 right now. another good ipo. it is 25r7bd $1 right now. we haven't had a reit ipo in a while. it was silver bay back in december. it was the last one. that did really well. by the way, aviv is projecting a 7% dividend yield. ask the ceo about that. 7%? are they going to stick to that? that is a juicy yield. that will help the company a lot. big story today, what's up with the earnings and guidance? i'm getting a little worried here. look at number adding up here. fedex, caterpillar, a krchctuan. airgas, great industrial bellwether. sales disappointing in february. no improvement in march, they're saying. airgas, entirely u.s.-based company. no, we can't blame it on your. no, china's sales are down. airgas, all u.s. that's a little bit of a concern to me. i call up everybody last night, say what the heck is going on here? is this the start of a trend here? everybody who says bull
an influencer and an implementer. she was one of the heavyweights at the table alongside bob gates in that first cabinet or in the first term of president obama. she had a lot of experience. and she was a big player on the global stage. president obama knew when he was elected that he wasn't going to be able to travel around the world and make america's case on a daily basis because he was going to be busy at home with the economy. so there was a very clear reason why he -- one of the many reasons why he chose her as secretary of state, because he knew she could do that for him on a daily basis in all around the world. and that's why i think that she would bring to him an accurate reading of where things stood, what she could deliver to him in terms of moving forward, in terms of agreement, in terms of where the players were when it comes to libya, for example. deliver to him, you know, what was needed for him to make the decision. she lost some battles, but she certainly influenced a lot of decisions. libya being one of them and asia, definitely. >> host: uh-huh, and we'll get to libya next, ac
. let's check in on bob pisani on what is moving here on the floor. >> japan is up 2% and they're just on fire. asia's mixed and europe is on the mixed side and here in the u.s. we're doing all right. airlines are roaring. banks are up. bank of america is up 1.5. the homebuilders are up. on cyprus, your guess is as good as mine. here's my guess, at the end of the day they'll go to 100,000 euros and they'll keep that deposit on 100,000 intact. yes, they're talking about 20,000 and they'll be under pressure to go all of the way up and yes, they'll get the russian oligarchs annoyed and the exploits annoyed and at end of the day they'll get close to $100,000 and that will go a long way to calm the contagion fears. the rest of europe isn't going to be that foolish. let's move on. did you see the homebuilders? the main etf for homebuilders and that's the itd in a five-year high and housing recovery chugging along and well above estimates. here's the number. year over year. single family starts are up 31% compared to february of last year. multifamilies are up 21%. permits are at their highes
of these profiles. i know mary and bob are overweight. do i want to keep them? cheryl: there is a third-party company that will keep the records separate. eventually, this is segregation. this is harassing people. this is punishing people. this is not the way to make people healthy. cheryl: they do not have to participate. >> no, but you have to pay. it is a different argument. it is not the way to do it. this is an un- organized way and it is a way to cut corners. now they have to provide health insurance for everybody. congratulations. this is the best you got. cheryl: let's have you come back so we can go through solutions. manny, thank you very much. cheaper to buy than rent. we have the numbers ahead if you are in the housing market. are you looking? think about it. huge tax bills pushing people from states like california. part three of our weeklong series. cue the music. ♪ investor. yeah, i'm a serious investor but i'm a busy guy. it used to be easier but now there are more choices than ever. i want to know exactly what i am investing in. i want to know exactly how much i'm pay
's check in with bob and he's on the floor this morning with more of what's moving. >> happy monday. weir well off of our lows and now we're only down 72 and the financials are weak and energy stocks and some of the materials are down 1%. all of the gold stocks are to the upside. you know, i asked around saturday and said why did they go after the deposits so much and apparently the answer i got from people who watch this stuff was that was all there was to go after and there was not a lot else they could seize in any way easily and with all of this said, can i just take the other side of this about not protesting too much? there were plenty of one-off taxes in europe. the italians have been screaming for months about this. they had a whole new bunch of taxes on their financial assets and some of capital gains and not all on deposits and there were a lot of one-off taxes in europe reese leent and will we have some kind of bank run? there have been safety programs in the last two years put into effect and they have the bond-buying program and the ecb, able to buy cheap loans and the ltro p
is this possible grand bargain being talked about on capitol hill. senator bob corker republican from tennessee was on "fox news sunday" and address the issue of a possible deal with the democrats on entitlement. let's take a listen. >> again i think there are by the way is a chance on a deal. i know the president is saying the right things and we have an opportunity over the next 45 months. i think we will know when the president is serious by virtue of a process that is set up where he is actually the table or whether he has to designate and whether he begins to say publicly to the american people and to all americans that he understands that americans are only paying one third of the cost of medicare. that has to change for the program to be here down the road but look chris, i think republicans if they saw as true entitlement reform would be glad to look at tax reform that generates additional revenues and that doesn't mean increasing rates. that means closing loopholes and it also means arranging our tax system so that we have economic growth. >> host: your take on senator corker's situati
for new election law, increased local representation. what about bob crane -- bahrain where the u.s. has been silent on many human rights abuses? how will he ensure the people that he is still committed to the values of human rights and democracy? the best posture on this is the iranianike issue. this is not an issue for one place that he goes to. we should have a set of common principles that we are talking about, repeating all the time in the area. .es, he is going to a monarchy yes, we have a very strong strategic stake in the well- the kingjordan and of and his government. the president in public should emphasize our commitment to jordan, he should also emphasize our commitments to a set of principles and how we want to do them fulfilled everywhere. i think the focus should be on how can we work with jordan to improve their governance? there are few things that will have more of a positive effect over time and enhancing the effectiveness of jordanian governance. the mix of public and private messages is something that should be part of this trip overall. --let me say, i don't think i
. >> i'm bob. we talked at the stocks store. i did your taxes. >> i thought you were a tax expert? >> today i'm a master plumber. tracy:. >> the judge says there is nothing false or misleading about the ad. good thing it says about turbotax it is true. the implication you can go to h&r block and maybe not get someone who is experienced in tax preparation is true even though the employees are trained there. that said, david gordon of asymmetric says many of more successful ads released during the tax prep season focused on differentiation. showcasing each firm's unique value proposition. as for ads mentioned in the lawsuit he says while h&r block did complain about their aggressive nature, most of the viewers in the ad test for this survey show they barely noticed the difference. back to you. tracy: i haven't either. i used both products. finished tax return. at end of the day you go with who is easy and got nothing to do with the ads but what do i know? diane macedo thank you very much. >> thank you. adam: you're a tax expert. you know a lot. tracy: but i don't think the ads are t

[laughter] >> among economists, is very significant debate about your estimate, and if so, what are would we bees that doing that we would be tangling with you on? >> that is a great question. the original estimates came back to us early on from a former student of mine who was working in the administration and who is a brilliant student from omb. he called me and said i have been tasked with setting up a committee to scrutinize all the numbers in your book
